What are Peripheral Vascular Diseases?
Peripheral vascular diseases are a group of conditions that affect the blood vessels outside of the heart. They can cause pain in the lower leg, also known as intermittent claudication, and other symptoms such as cramping, heaviness, or achiness.
Symptoms of Peripheral Vascular Diseases
Patients with vascular diseases may have symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, or leg pain. A Vascular Surgeon in Lucknow can help you in early diagnosis of vascular diseases and help you in getting early treatment.
Management of Vascular Disease
The treatment of vascular diseases starts with diagnosis and includes medications, procedures, and surgery. Doctors might use a variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate a patient's condition. These tests may include imaging studies such as CT scans or MRIs, duplex ultrasound, or angiography.
In some cases, a vascular surgeon may perform an endovascular procedure, which involves accessing an artery or vein through a small incision in the groin. Endovascular procedures may be used to treat blockages in the leg. The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms and prevent complications.
Depending on the condition, your doctor may prescribe medications, recommend lifestyle changes, or recommend surgery. If surgery is needed, a vascular surgeon may perform an endovascular procedure to open a blocked artery or vein or use open surgery to repair a ruptured aneurysm. The goal of surgery is to prevent a life-threatening event such as a stroke or heart attack.
